The countdown continues and we are down to only three weekends left of summer. It is so quiet in the city today—when has the F train ever had the majority of seats open at 8:00 A.M.? For those of you in town this weekend, more thunderstorms are predicted, so if you go to Central Park, watch out for falling trees.
Here’s the second song of our Friday “Summertime” jam series from the Long Beach, Cali band, Sublime. Sublime finally achieved mainstream success with their self-titled third album in 1996. Sadly, the Sublime album was the group’s last; lead singer Bradley Nowell died of a heroin overdose shortly before its release. This song is a classic and although it’s not officially entitled “Summertime” I’m pretty sure it counts.
Sublime – Doin’ Time:
Editor’s note: Please excuse the randomness of this video, it was the best version of the song available.
